@BigBobE

Do you ever come over this side of the channel perchance, else have suggestions as to a decent Irish courier/postal service? Only a small package, but it looks like your couriers could make even Royal Mail weep. big_smile

Re: @BigBobE

There's a chap over there, (Southern Ireland, I believe), has an original Drummond lathe faceplate he doesn't need any more. Not a particularly big or heavy thing, (it's a 5" cast iron faceplate and will probably weigh around one kilo, I'm guessing offhand), but it seems the price is a tad steep for posting it over this way. Not that I'm a tight arse mind, whistle but when the price of postage for one piece equates to roughly half of what you'd normally pay for a full machine, t'old Tyke behaviour kicks in. big_smile Hence, just wondered if you might know of any reasonably priced couriers, (not sure how your postal system works across there?), else if it might be possibly cheaper to send it to yours, then if you ever ventured across the water to just drop it into a Post Office on this side of the water.

Trying to build up a collection of just the ancillary bits for the lathes now, but my usual approach usually ends up with the full machine being purchased, and as you can likely guess, both the travelling required and the space they take up means I'm trying to be a tad more selective nowadays. big_smile Could barely squeeze another full machine in if I wanted to. big_smile
